The Policy Benchmark is comprised of the following weighted indices: 70% All Country World Index and 30% Barclays Aggregate Bond Fund. The Community Foundation compares its performance to this benchmark to determine if active management of our investment portfolio produces a superior return to what a typical, passively invested endowment portfolio would produce.
The Community Foundation also compares our performance to a long-term benchmark comprised of 5% plus the rate of inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Over the long-term, the Foundation seeks to earn 5% plus CPI to cover the cost of annual grants to charity while protecting the real value of the underlying endowments.
